From my understanding you need 3 things to make it work. A SLI compatible motherboard, a SLI compatible PSU (I think it just has to have more then a 300w output.) And two SLI video cards which either will be connected by a SLI bridge (A cable with connects the two cards at the top of each card) included with your motherboard, or will will not use the bridge and be "connected" by the drivers included with the card (As in the case of the 8500GT).

PSU (Not 100% sure that you actually need a certified version, I think any PSU over 300 watts, 400 to be on the safe side, will do):
